Dear Women & Girls Community, We are excited to share our plans for the future of women and girls’ coverage at News Deeply.In January 2018, our Women & Girls page will close as we launch the first of a new set of dedicated platforms that will allow us to dive deeper into the biggest issues affecting women and girls in the developing world.Umar Alam, Head of the UNESCO Office in South Sudan.
We’ll also be working to launch other dedicated platforms in this space, and we are currently exploring themes of maternal, sexual and reproductive health, as well as gender-based violence.
Neither can it be denied that this site contains important and significant natural habitats for in-situ conservation of biological diversity and threatened species such as the Rothschilds giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis rothschildi) and the wild dog (Lycaon pictus).
So how are these values preserved for the future generations of South Sudanese and for the global community as a whole?
In addition, the site is an unquestionable source of national pride and an important part of South Sudan’s common heritage.
This activity, which was made possible through a generous contribution from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science of the Netherlands Funds-in-Trust to UNESCO, is part of UNESCO’s efforts to support the Government of South Sudan in the implementation of the World Heritage Convention.
